The uploader doesn't work by default in Tor Browser, because of its restriction of third-party cookies. In order to use the uploader, you have to click Torbutton (the onion icon in the toolbar), select "Privacy and Security Settings...", and then uncheck the box labeled "Restrict third party cookies and other tracking data".

If you leave the box checked, you get an infinite loop of "There is a network problem, [Resume Uploading], 403 Forbidden (details)" dialogs. Concretely, the 403 error comes from the XHR PUT to https://s3.us.archive.org/ (the console logs "onload received error status").

I'm not having a problem anymore with the in-browser uploader, using Tor Browser 7.5 and the medium security slider setting.
